10.3.14 matchy matchy


My mom is going to be so proud of me and my matching skills today. My usual attempts to match are less about “matching” and more about falling through my wardrobe to find myself fully dressed. Black and red rose print leggings and purple striped shirt? I don’t mind. But today! Wow! Not only do my shoes and my bangles match, but my eyeshadow matches, and my shirt/pants combo is generally complimentary. I tried to get a photo of this but the art of full body selfie taking is lost on me.

Today’s bangles: the pair of blue Herm├Ęs bangles from back in the day and my two brass Goodwill finds.


My friend Ross and I were driving around aimlessly, you know, probably stuck in second gear after stopping at our local coffee shop when we came across a garage sale. I insisted we pullover so I could root thru all the junk. What I purchased was a a charm bracelet that was supposed to spell out FRIENDS but instead spelled out FRIED. That’s what you get when your life is not a sitcom. And when you spend fifty cents on jewelry. Man, I wish I could find that bracelet.

Instead let’s talk friendship bracelets. If you are a girl and/or were ever 11 years old and/or ever boarded at summer camp, then you know about friendship bracelets. You know you are supposed make them for your friends, give them out, tie them on and wear them until they rot off your wrist. So it very much feels like cheating to even consider purchasing one but… This girl on Etsy makes the CUTEST friendship bracelets.
